The Penang Pirate
 
 
Author John Conroy Hutcheson
 
This is a fairly short book, consisting of two short stories. The first of these, “The Penang Pirate”, describes how the Captain of tHe “Hankow Lin”, suspecting that there might be a piratical attack on his vessel on her return voyage from Canton to Australia, lays plans to spoil the pirates’ fun. As a result of this the attacking pirate vessel is soundly beaten, but there were some interesting events and confrontations before they actually met the pirate schooner.
